From tomorrow until August 31, Centro Sefarad-Israel presents the exhibition Kafka, the visionary, composed of the paintings that the artist Sofia Gandarias dedicated to the universe of the Jewish writer and his work.
The dramatism of Sofia Gandarias’ paintings serves, in this exhibition, to illustrate the life of one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. XX. The lights and shadows, the horrors and the clarity, the pessimism and the hopes combine with the existentialism that marked the enigmatic life of the author of Metamorphosis. As a side of the same coin, reason and madness are used in the paintings of Gandarias to guide the viewer through an oniric universe that may well serve as an accompaniment to the texts of the Jewish author.
